You are poetry

Layout

poesía eres tu

As you might know already, I just had illustrated and released the book “Poesías de Extremadura para niños”. A very special project for me that touched my heart since the very beginning. It was a long process, full of hard work and hours, not just illustrating, but also compiling the poems and taking care of the layout till the extreme. No editors, no agents, just the writer -Natividad- and me (and the printer company making a speechless job).

Illustrating poetry seems to me more complicated than illustrating prose, but illustrating for children was a good fun!

This September we finally saw how the book was born. The “gestation” was more than nine months, almost a year I would say. But it is worth the effort. It looks just as we imagined and wanted and I think it radiates love :). Not saying this because it is my “kid” but… it is freaking beautiful and tender :P

Intense September- Matadero Madrid!

Design Market, Graphic Design

Mercado Central de diseño

September was intense from the beginning to the end. Weekends included. I even stopped posting to focus on all the work we needed to have done.

We planned our road trip with the intention to arrive in Madrid just on time to participate at “Mercado central de diseño” (a really cool design market) as Bohemian Design, in Matadero. Over the moon and with the car overloaded -not just with suitcases but also with books, illustrations and notebooks- we drove half Europe in 3 days… :) Even if this time we couldn´t bring any furniture to the exposition, the best was yet to come.

Matadero, is for sure, a must if you visit Madrid and you love design. I fell in love with everything and even though I wanted to write a post like this one, I didn´t have time to take pictures of other designers because visitors were stopping by constantly. In fact, the pic that opens the post was made by Alejandro Melillo, who sent it to us few days later.

Concerts, great atmosphere and top designers are, in my opinion, the key of success. Next time I will take pictures for sure and you will see I am not exagerating! :)
